I love Curtis. I'd go back for him.

How long is "Several Weeks"? I'm seeing the show mid-august and don't want to miss him.
Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

Rapp tweeted that he blew out his ACL. I wouldn't plan on seeing him in mid-August.

if he actually blew out his ACL, that's a serious injury. we're talking multiple months... not multiple weeks.

I'm seeing the show tomorrow. Saw the show twice with Anthony and thought he was great. Excited to see Curtis. Kind of wishing Jackie is on as well...

I saw Curtis on the 4th and he was wonderful, those seeing him shouldn't be disappointed in the least.

Did this happen during the If/Then vs. Les Mis softball game?

"Several weeks" is however long it takes for him to recovery enough to safely return to the show. There probably isn't an exact return date in place at this point.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I was told a few weeks ago that Rapp is expected to return to the show September 2nd.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

I actually thought he was horrible, glad to hear Rapp will return soon!

When it comes to post-knee rehabilitation, I wouldn't trust any information from "a few weeks ago." Anthony is no stranger to posting information online when it is official, so I wouldn't book tickets for his return engagement just yet...

Sorry to hear that, craig. I've had achilles issues in the past and they are no fun.... but that's a completely different injury, you can't really draw comparisons to a knee injury.
